Hardware These are good times for PC-based graphics workstation users as Elsa and 3Dlabs are fighting it out for your video card dollars. Elsa's newest entry into the market is the Synergy 2000 which looks to be a very capable entry-level card.
Based on the NVIDIA Quadro2 EX graphics processor it offers excellent graphics performance in the areas of 2D and 3D. Above all it is a perfect tool in the areas of stability and productivity-the highest priorities in professional applications. The ELSA Software Advantage™ offers a package of optimized drivers and tools for the most important CAD/CAM and DCC applications.
Although Elsa claimes an "unbeatable price performance ratio", I was unable to determine the price of the board.

Hardware 3Dlabs has been announced as the Workstation Graphics Leader in a recent NT/Windows 2001 Workstation Market Study.
"Professional workstation users are increasingly demanding graphics products that are specifically engineered for professional graphics applications, rather than games chips pressed into service as makeshift workstation solutions," said Osman Kent, president and CEO of 3Dlabs. "3Dlabs is at the forefront of this trend, as indicated by this most-recent market share data. We believe that our continued focus on professional requirements will result in further growth in market share for 3Dlabs graphics accelerators going forward."
